The gem and jew­ellery in­dus­try has rec­om­mended a vol­un­tary in­crease in min­i­mum value ad­di­tion on coin sales. This will per­suade con­sumers to buy jew­ellery and other val­ueadded prod­ucts. We also wish the gov­ern­ment bans bul­lion sales to con­sumers. This will bring the im­ports down by 200 tonnes, thus rein­ing in the CAD. The gov­ern­ment should re­move all re­stric­tions and in­cen­tivise ex­ports. Gag­ging the trade won’t help any­one.
